back story= the clutch finally went kaput along with the clutch fork last month. We threw in a brand new Spec Stg 1 clutch that Shawn had given to me after he traded in his WRX. We'll the bugger isn't holding and slipping in 5th. It slips with any amount of gas that isn't literally nursing it speed (like passing a Prius and saving gas speed) any sudden pedal movement causes it to slip. NOT JUST STOMPING IT. It doesn't seem to disengage completely in 4th either. The Stage 1 is rated at 280 lbs. My power estimates are based off of similar builds.

How many miles since the install? Some staged clutches require being babied / break-in and can take up to 1500 - 2000 miles. I wouldn't be so quick to assume there is a problem with the clutch itself.
